The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare the value of integrated PET/CT and separate PET plus morphological imaging studies for lesion localisation in cancer patients. Two different series of consecutive patients who had previously been treated for neoplastic disease were considered. One series consisted of 105 patients who had undergone [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT (n=70) or [11C]choline PET/CT (n=35) studies (PET/CT group). The other series comprised 105 patients who had… CONTINUE READING
